5 Earth Material Questions! NEED DONE IN 2 HRS !!!
Describe the formation of primitive and recycled magma. Be sure to include where each of these magmas are formed.
Briefly describe how the development and changes in the biosphere affected the formation of minerals in early Earth history.
What is the radius ratio? How does that determine Coordination Number and how is this useful?
Describe the three main ways that magma can be generated (heat to generate partial melting) to produce igneous rocks and related minerals.
Explain the basic function Bragg’s Law and how it contributes to determining the atomic properties of minerals. These properties allow X-ray diffraction to identify minerals. You may wish to draw a sketch and label the relevant parts.
